In my opinion, if Brian Baylis repaints a MASI, it's not a restoration. If Waterford repaints a paramount, it's not a restoration. If Dale Brown repaints a Dale Brown, it's not a restoration. If Jack Taylor repaints a Jack Taylor it's not a restoration.

If Da Vinci paints over an earlier layer of paint and finally pronounces himself "finished" on the Mona Lisa, it's not a restoration, it's just his final take on his original piece of art.
